Jonathan Mote

I’m from Southeastern North Carolina and practiced cosmetology there for more than a decade. I moved to Asheville and joined ananda in the summer of 2015. Some of my hobbies include spirituality, hiking, Netflix, and a good Gin and Tonic.

What makes your hair brain sing? I love helping clients see themselves in a new way and creating a look that not only is flattering but fits their lifestyle. I love variety and I feel that this shows in my clientele.  They range from beautiful long layered cuts to edgy pixies. Color is a huge passion of mine and I take great pride in creating the perfect shade to complement my client. I love creating beautiful blondes, reds, and rich dimensional brunettes.

Go-to davines Product - I love the YHA Blowdry Primer, it is my go to when doing a blow out and does all the things I need. It creates body, humidity protection, and a beautiful shine. The Dry Texture Spray is also a personal favorite.  I use it on my own hair and I love how it instantly gives your hair separation and body; it’s like dry shampoo and hairspray had a baby.

What YOU love about ananda -  Since the first day of joining ananda I’ve been so impressed with the level of skill and customer service that our team demonstrates. I love the people I’m fortunate enough to work with and I’m constantly inspired. Working here has made me a better stylist and a better person.
